Nobel’s Spe­cialty Chem­i­cals busi­ness and Ita­conix are to col­lab­o­rate to jointly eval­u­ate and de­velop in­no­va­tive bio-based che­lates for use in the con­sumer and in­dus­trial deter­gents and clean­ers mar­kets.

It is the sec­ond part­ner­ship stem­ming from a joint de­vel­op­ment agree­ment signed by the com­pa­nies ear­lier this year to de­velop and com­mer­cial­ize sus­tain­able prod­ucts made from re­new­able feed­stocks us­ing Ita­conix tech­nol­ogy. Prod­ucts from this col­lab­o­ra­tion will be mar­keted un­der Akzo Nobel’s Dis­solvine brand

“Bio-based che­lates show prom­ise for use in laun­dry deter­gents, bath­room clean­ers and other con­sumer and com­mer­cial clean­ing prod­ucts. They are re­place­ments for phos­phates, which are be­ing phased out due to en­vi­ron­men­tal con­cerns,” said Peter Kui­jpers, Gen­eral Man­ager Che­lates and Mi­cronu­tri­ents at Akzo Nobel.
